  5. 'Hawk' Harrelson retiring from booth after '18

    The White Sox announced on Wednesday that Ken "Hawk" Harrelson, the club's iconic television play-by-play announcer on CSN Chicago and WGN-TV, will return for his 34th and final season in the broadcast booth in 2018. A five-time Emmy Award winner, three-time Ford C. Frick Award nominee and two-time Illinois Sportscaster of the Year, Harrelson will work a 20-game schedule during the 2018 season, including Sunday home games and other select contests.

  6. The Hunt For Shohei Ohtani

    It's on. He's being posted this offseason. The quickest way to go from a middle of the pack team to a contender would be by signing an ace-caliber pitcher for under $3M. Almost unfair to the teams that miss out on him.

  8. Question About Saves In Rain-Shortened Games

    If the Yankees game does not resume, David Robertson will have entered in a save situation (he wouldn't have been left in to finish, but it's a save situation in that blowing it would have given him a blown save) and held the lead. Can a pitcher who wasn't the last pitcher get a save if the game gets rain-shortened while his team is batting in the next half inning?

  9. 2018 Chasen Shreve Performance Thread

    Tonight he became the first pitcher since 1912 (probably ever) to have a game with all of this: 1 1/3 or fewer innings At least 3 strikeouts (I doubt anybody had 3 strikeouts in 1 1/3 or fewer innings before 1912) At least 1 reached on error At least 1 grand slam At least 1 walk At least 1 hit by pitch At least 4 unearned runs 0 earned runs

  11. Could a Trade Deprive Manny Machado of the Triple Crown?

    Manny Machado leads the AL in batting average and RBI and is 1 behind Mookie Betts in home runs. Imagine if Machado leads MLB in all three categories but doesn't win the Triple Crown because he gets traded to the NL.

  12. Are lefties at a disadvantage with the new shifts?

    On ESPN Scott Boras was defending Harper average (.217) and blaming the new shifts we are seeing. Made the following statement that it's unfair towards lefties, especially power hitting lefties. Makes some valid points. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/23991198/scott-boras-sticks-client-bryce-harper-numbers-dipped-contract-year "I've certainly come to the conclusion that shifting is grandly discriminatory in the game against power left-handed hitters. The reason for that is, you see...

  13. Does The 26th Man For a Doubleheader Have to Be One Player?

    Does the 26th man for a doubleheader have to be one player going up and down? Can the Yankees activate Tanaka, have him serve as kind of the 26th man, and send somebody else down after the doubleheader who would have gone done to activate Tanaka if there wasn't a doubleheader?

It has a lot of statistics. It says: "When asked about it, pitchers often talk about how The Shift made them uncomfortable. It was rarely put into words further than that, perhaps because pitchers didn’t want to...

  15. Can we just talk about Mike Trout for a second?

    Dude puts up one GREAT year after another. He's unreal. Will go down as one of the all time greats. It's a shame he's being wasted on the Angels tbh I just can't get over his consistent greatness. And it's like he's even getting better.

  18. Does The Ground Rule Double Rule Apply to Reaching on an Error?

    Gardner reached second when the ball went through the first baseman's legs and got stuck under the wall, although I thought the ball could have been pulled out. What is the text of the ground rule double rule in terms of applying it to reaching on an error, which isn't a double?

  19. Offense down throughout Major League Baseball

    The average slash line for a major league hitter this year: .245, .317, .405, .723 The “tanking” epidemic has hit baseball and hit it hard. Look at the lineup that the Rays are trotting out tonight. There are about 10 franchises actively trying to win. The rest are just using their big league club as an avenue to develop players. It sucks for guys like Adam Lind who couldn’t get a job despite coming off a year in which he hit .300.

Michael Kay said that the only way to eliminate PEDs is to give a lifetime ban for a first positive test. I have a proposal that is not a lifetime ban, but is much bigger than the current 80 games. I propose that after a first positive test, players can never make more than the MLB minimum. Therefore...
